WWE NXT is headed for a thrilling showdown this week, with a wrestling prodigy Tiffany Stratton getting ready to tussle with multiple-time champion, Becky Lynch. This epic clash is set to go down on the September 13 episode of WWE NXT.
At a tender age of 24, Stratton has already shown her mettle, overpowering an impressive array of opponents in the women’s division of WWE’s developmental brand. Now, she’s geared up to pit her skills against “The Man” Becky Lynch, in a move that promises to push her boundaries further and test her wrestling prowess in a way it’s never been put to the test before.
On a recent episode of Reality Of Wrestling, WWE’s own five-time world champion and current NXT commentator, Booker T, drew parallels between Stratton’s imminent duel against Lynch and a significant moment from his own history — his storied battle with wrestling royalty, Ric Flair, during Saturday Night’s Main Event.
“Without a doubt, Tiffany Stratton’s upcoming match with Becky Lynch is highly anticipated. Wrestling fans are keen to see this match unfold,” opined Booker T. “I remember my inaugural bout with Ric Flair well. It felt like a confirmation, like I’d truly arrived. For Tiffany, this moment, this test, is just as important. But more important than the match itself is the wealth of knowledge and experience she stands to gain from it.”
Booker T then shared his memories and wisdom from his own development path. “Ric and other legends like Ricky Steamboat didn’t merely test me, they were instrumental in my wrestling education. Matches with them felt like a masterclass, allowing me to learn the ropes first-hand and gain an understanding that no wrestling school could match.”
Having enjoyed a highly fruitful career inside the four corners of the ring, WWE Hall of Fame inductee Booker T attributes his in-ring success to the teachings and experiences of working with wrestling luminaries like Flair and Steamboat.
As we look ahead to this high-stakes encounter, fans will surely be watching to see if Stratton is able to seize this potentially career-defining opportunity.
